HCMA Foundation

About the HCMA Foundation, Inc.

The Hillsborough County Medical Association (HCMA) Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization which provides cash grants to non-profit organizations in the Tampa Bay area for programs designed to promote awareness and support of health and health-related issues in Hillsborough County, Florida and surrounding areas.

The HCMA Foundation consists of a network of physicians and local businesses dedicated to enriching our community. Partnerships with the Tampa Bay business community is a fundamental goal of the HCMA, the HCMA Alliance, and the HCMA Foundation; and has been an essential component for the success of the Foundation Charity Golf Classic, the Foundation’s major fundraiser.
